Origins – Brighter by Nature Skin Tone Correcting Serum

originsCatching up to the Asian whitening craze, now there are more and more skin brightening products from western brands that promise to fade away dark spots and discolorations.
Enter Origins, who has already made a few other skin brightening products (A Perfect World line). The new product is a skin tone correcting serum that contains Japanese Basil Leaf, Cucumber and naturally-derived Vitamin C, which will even out skin tone, zap the appearance of dark spots and help prevent new ones.

Origins – GinZing Eye Cream

ziNew from Origins, a leading brand in natural skin care products, comes GinZing Eye Cream, a premium eye cream that de-puffs and reduces dark circles.
Made from a proprietary complex of Caffeine from Coffee beans, Panax Ginseng, Magnolia Extract and natural optic brighteners that promises to rapidly wake up, refresh and restore radiance to tired eyes.
On it’s own, it’s not exactly a miracle cream. I used it several days in a row and liked the brightening effect and mild de-puffing, but I didn’t notice much in the way of lightening dark circles. However, when used in conjunction with under eye concealer, this stuff is amazing. Specifically Benefit boi-ing under eye concealer.
Boi-ing isn’t a miracle worker on it’s own either, but put a layer of GinZing on and then dab on some boi-ing and you’ll get the best coverage on your dark circles you could ever want.
